After executing search and arrest warrants Thursday night at Jade Massage Therapy -- in a raid believed to be the first of its kind in town history -- police said they charged Yan Qin, also known as "Connie," with prostitution and expect additional arrests to be made as the investigation continues. Yan Qin, with a listed address of 21 W. Main St. The presence of the massage parlor, which opened two years ago adjacent to some of the town's principal commercial buildings and businesses, came as a surprise to many in Clinton, and its location since has drawn complaints from residents, neighboring business owners, and some public officials as inappropriate for the heart of town.
The two windows and glass door in the storefront where the business operated are completely covered by large photographs and signage, offering services such as "deep tissue massage," "Swedish," incense therapy, and "reflexology. Police said they had received numerous, but unsubstantiated, complaints alleging that male patrons were engaging in sex with Jade's female employees.
Eventually, they said extensive surveillance and undercover visits to the establishment by "cooperating witnesses" confirmed those allegations. Police said most of Jade's clients were adult males from towns other than Clinton, and virtually all of them engaged in illicit activity at the business.
Business records, notes, lotions, and computers were removed from the business, police said, as well as an internal surveillance system whose recordings are under scrutiny by investigators. Police said the business was also known as " Massage" and is owned by Yujing Hou, also known as Anna, of Flushing, N. Police said she has a state license as a massage therapist, but is present at the Clinton location only once a week.
Yan Qin and a second woman who worked at the business do not have licenses, police said. Police said zoning approval for the business was granted the original owner, who since sold it to Yujing Hou and under whose name the business is licensed by health officials. The Clinton massage parlor is associated with similar businesses in Connecticut and the tri-state area, police said.
